Online articles and Blogs about Emergency ID Australia

Medical jewellery distributor Emergency ID Australia has released an app for Android and iOS that shows a user’s critical medical details as wallpaper on the locked screen of their mobile phones.

The app allows users to display urgent information such as allergies and emergency contact details on the screen for easy access by paramedics, emergency services personnel and healthcare professionals.
